Red Hill Mining Town and Love is Blindness are MUCH lower than they appeared during the event!

Excellent top 3! Love Horses in the top 10!!

Acrobat got more than double the tweets of the 2nd place. Very happy to see Exit at #3. One of the highlights of the JT tour.

I just don't think U2 will do Exit and maybe not Acrobat either.

Happy for Heartland too! :)

I've never perceived U2 to be a band that takes requests. But I have a feeling that this petition was quite loud and that they will at least take notice of Acrobat if nothing else.

  • There's many lost, but tell me who has won
Let's not forget A Sort of Homecoming!! On zootopia.u2.com it is one of the most popular!

Really happy to see Acrobat win. Let's hope that the band aknowledges it.
A Sort of Homecoming has never been that great live to me. Oh well...
So Cruel 4th... no comment
Please 5th... Wow!! Don't know if it's useful, but I hope it will be.
Mofo only 15th... Sigh

Would be happy to hear any of those songs in the top ten... Except maybe So Cruel.
I really hope they don't drop songs like Streets, One, Beautiful Day though, like some people are saying because this is my first tour and I want a chance to see said songs :)

The So Cruel tweets I saw specifically wanted Bono's acoustic version a la From The Sky Down for the AB anniversary.

Mofo seemed to have lots more tweets that day. Odd

I just don't see U2 going so "dark" unless Acrobat is mixed in w/ the Experience selections however that will play out.

Bono of today will probably change the lyrics to Acrobat if they play it.

Which would be a real shame as it's that anger /honesty that helps the song to be what it is, the 'dont let the bastards grind you down' line is a gritty refrain but one laced with defiance and therefore hope.

Agreed and their 90s work is not about succumbing or embracing, but about wrestling.

Lady With The Spinning Head seemed to have a lot of tweets as well.
